Description:

On the beautiful wall opposite Golden Dream. Go up to the top of the flake, and up whatever way you can. If you can reach up to the horizontal cracks this climb is no harder than 5.6. If you have to use intermediate holds, it's much harder - feet and hand holds are sparse and small. Beautiful balancey climb. If you can't make the reach, I'd call it a +8ish.

5 out of 5 stars Great climb

Good technical climb. Really hard (5.9?) for those under 5'4".

3 out of 5 stars Ran another lap

Just because I could. Tried to go straight up, but, I couldn't make the horizontal.

3 out of 5 stars 5.6 MA!

As a shorty, I found the move off the ledge to be reachy. I went far right, cranked a high left foot, matched on one crimper and pulled the move. I would not want to lead this!

3 out of 5 stars Warm up

Warmup for Scoop Face im 6.2 so it was easy but I did enjoy the layback.
